Tuesday Teasers, July 28, 2009

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just do the following:

* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title & author, too, so that other TT participants can add the book to their TBR Lists if they like your teasers!

"Up against the back stoop, overhung by a small porch roof, I saw a wide and deep pile of pork bones, carrot tops, rotted squash,, broken furniture, soiled sheets, black-haired rag dolls, broken liquor bottles, one mirror, three busted clocks, a rusted frying pan, and a mess of white paper covered in nonsense scribbling. Such things should have been carted off to be burned or buried, but that pile had obviously just kept growing outside the door."

From: A Separate Country by Robert Hicks...due out September 2009. Robert Hicks is the bestselling author of The Widow of the South. This is his new novel set in New Orleans, after the war. A historical novel based on the life of the General John Bell Hood, a notable Confederate general.

According to the back cover....
"is the bittersweet story of a decent and good man who refused to admit defeat-and the story of those who taught him to both love and be loved, and transformed him."

Published by Hachette Book Group.
